The Old Forge area is a patchwork of private and public property. Please respect private property and posted signs, and avoid climbing or trespassing on private property unless you have permission from the landowner.


Flatrock Boulders problems are mostly on true boulders, some roped climbing on short cliffbands. Rock is fine-grained with quartz bands. Some areas are in swampy locations depending on rain and time of year. Summer can be buggy winters cold and snowy. Most of the boulders are in dense forest so moss can be abundant.

Getting There 

From the Thendara train station at the west end of Old Forge, drive south on NY 28 for 3.8 miles to a parking area along a short, unmarked road on left. The road has a stand of trees in front of it but if your watching you will see the entrance and exit. If you make it to Scusa Road (on left) you've gone too far. The trail is at the south end of the parking. From 28 you can see the first boulders up in the woods.
